Gov. Neil Abercrombie holds HB 2626, the Safe Routes to School bill

Gaining positive and consistent coverage in the media has had an incredible impact on the work Get Fit Kauai is doing. Thanks to our many partners including TGI (the Garden Island Newspaper), Midweek Kauai, For Kauai Online, and KQNG Radio Group, Get Fit Kauai’s message has had a multiplier effect on the good work we are doing. Since inception in 2009, Get Fit Kauai’s work has been recognized publically on a regular basis..

Below are a series of articles that have appeared in TGI and other papers over the last several years. They tell an amazing story. We would like to extend our many thanks to Bill Buley, Dennis Fujimoto and the talented staff at the Garden Island Newspaper as well as Coco Zickos and Léo Azambuja for their continued support over the years.
